Street Soccer USA fights poverty and empowers under-served communities through soccer by providing an alternative to the pay-to-play model of youth sports with a focus on social impact across the United States and beyond. Street Soccer USA Davidson connections include Lawrence Cann ’00 (founder) and Cory Lester ’05 (NYC board member).

Street Soccer USA staff and volunteers will reconstruct a soccer park in the Red Hook, Brooklyn neighborhood comprising of two soccer courts.We will be putting together the flooring and connecting the walls. The project will take around 3-4 hours and once complete staff and volunteers will take time to play and celebrate on the newly constructed park with the community.
